Mater Dei High School's Annual Auction


Virtual Silent Auction Opens Monday, March 22

Virtual Event and Live Auction On Saturday, March 27 at 6 pm


Last year’s All-School Auction: A Taste of Mater Dei on February 8, 2020 raised over $400,000 at our sold-out event! With gratitude, we reflected on the success of that night and then March 2020 happened….

We pray that you and yours are safe and well during these difficult and uncertain times.

Despite these “COVID times,” our entire student body, faculty, and staff have demonstrated resiliency and hope while faced with the circumstances of this ever-changing world. Now more than ever, we understand what a blessing and privilege it is to be a part of this Mater Dei family.

Although we continue to be physically distant, we remain connected to our community though a shared passion for a better tomorrow for our current Monarchs. Based in the heart of Orange County and Santa Ana, Mater Dei is the epicenter of our vibrant school community where people from every socio-economic, cultural, and geographic corner come together.

Moreover, the blessing of robust technology has allowed us to continue moving forward with innovation and creativity. To that end, we are delighted to announce this year’s All School Auction: A Taste of Mater Dei – YOUR WAY will take place on Saturday, March 27, 2021 from the comfort and safety of your own home.  We will bring the fun to YOU!  Virtual silent auction opens on Monday, March 22. 

A Taste of Mater Dei is the largest and MOST IMPORTANT all-school school fundraiser of the year.  Proceeds from this event are critical to our mission and fund crucial school-wide programs while helping us meet annual operating expenses.
